Dynamic Cupping

dynamic cupping

This unique modality combines traditional massage techniques with the negative pressure of specifically designed suction cups. These cups are then moved along the length of the muscle or left in a static position, depending on what the therapist is aiming to accomplish.

There are SO MANY benefits of this amazing modality! By incorporating negative pressure AND glide, Dynamic Cupping is an efficient way to address chronic conditions, injuries, and scar tissue. It does this by removing adhesions in the fascia layer which limit the ability for muscles to contract and move freely. You can think of adhesions as sticky points in the connective tissue between the layers of muscle. These resistance points can be due to scar tissue, tight muscle bundles (trigger points), repetitive overuse or imbalances within the body's joints or muscles.

Benefits include:
  • improved blood flow
  • tissue repair
  • scar tissue mobility, to aid healing
  • decreased muscle tension
  • increased joint mobility
  • better overall muscle function
  • mechanoreceptor stimulation*

*Mechanoreceptors are sensory organs located within your joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and skin. These receptors are sensitive to stretch and when stimulated send a signal to the brain. These signals communicate information about the tissue such as: it's overall length and tension, where that body part is in space and whether or not it's injured and in need of repair.

"I love Dynamic Cupping- it feels like you are getting two treatments in one. It seems so efficient... like my massage therapist can get more done during a session. I move so much better after my treatments." -M.R.

 

Prenatal Massage

During pregnancy the body is faced with unique challenges that result in changes to posture, movement patterns, and balance. While these changes are natural and necessary, they can lead to some unwanted symptoms. These symptoms include general discomfort, low back/pelvis pain, upper back stiffness, a feeling of imbalance, trouble sleeping, and fatigue. Massage is an excellent way to support your body during this time.

Our massage therapist, Nicole Lewis is certified in Prenatal Massage. She takes a special interest in Pregnancy and Postpartum care and has taken additional training to ensure her clients are in good hands. She is knowledgable in hands-on massage and stretching techniques, as well as proper client positioning and draping. She is also specially trained to recognize contraindications to care, and identify risks that can be discussed with your Obgyn or midwife prior to starting treatment. As important as knowing HOW to treat, is knowing WHEN to treat.

If you would like to schedule a Prenatal Massage, you can select Nicole in the practitioner options and then choose any length of treatment that you'd like.
